    Why is it called “Chance’s?”

    Chance’s Pie & Coffee Shop is named in memory of Chance Urschel. Chance was involved in HPUMC’s Belong disABILITY Ministry and, despite his physical limitations, he loved bringing a smile to others’ faces by baking and giving away pies. HPUMC and the Urschel family hope that Chance’s Pie & Coffee Shop will inspire others to share their gifts and find joy in baking, just like Chance did.

    Where is it located?

    The shop is on the first floor of the Tolleson Family Activity Center (located at the corner of Hillcrest and Normandy) and is managed and staffed by participants of HPUMC’s Belong disABILITY Ministry.

    When is it open?

    The shop will have its grand opening on September 15 and will be open Sundays through Fridays from 7:30 am to 12:30 pm.
